Red, White and Blue Birthday

My friends’ brother was coming home from serving in the Marines and it was his birthday,
both very good reasons for a party.
I felt very privileged and excited to do the cake for my friend for him.
It was a chocolate cake with a raspberry cream filling, covered with Italian butter cream, topped with vanilla fondant. I layered it with colored ribbons of fondant and stars. It was topped with cut out patterns of fondant to create a camouflage pattern on top. The prairie dog was so much fun to model and the fur was added using royal icing.
For my Wilton students, the cake has a lot of inlays and overlays from course 3. :0)
